Blake Taylor

A leverage index of 1.0 means Taylor appeared in average situations for relievers over the course of 2021. In 51 appearances, Taylor was used in back to back situations 10 times and appeared in the sixth inning or earlier ten times.

Taylor allowed 8-of-26 (31%) of inherited runners to score and was 0-for-5 (three regular, two tough) in save opportunities. Brooks Raley got a lot of the ink, but Taylor had just as many clean outings (35) as Raley in seven fewer appearances, with a superior ERA and allowed a lower ratio of inherited runners to score.
